Big Damn Clinic….Now in Graphic Form!

Working Class Acupuncture has grown. How? How mcuh? How far? Check out the graph below (made by Wade) which shows the growth since 2006. (Yes, WCA opened in 2002, but we don't have the numbers from before 2006.) At the Big Damn Clinic workshop to be held Spetember 7-9 in Portland, we go over this chart in more detail to explain what happens to clinics. Early bird registration is over July 15th so sign up for $180 for the weekend today! (14 CEU's for both NCCAOM and California.)

    Seps: Bingo. Snowpacolypse. Three weeks it lasted. Lisa didn’t get paid and most of us took a pay cut.

    It looks like, besides the Snowpocalypse, that you have really regular seasonal patterns.  Fascinating!

    Diana- Sorry to take so long in responding. We aren’t sure if we will bring this on the road. Right now the answer is probably not. But we will look into it.

    My fave part of this awesome graph is that one little bounce that goes alll the way up and kisses the 1000/week line.  Big damn indeed!

    Ah yes, the May Day bounce. The nice thing about it is that we eventually take those bounces and they become a normal week for us.

    My favorite part of the graph is how that little green patch in the corner is about to take over the whole thing over the next year or so.

    Hey Skip. Please travel with it. I looked into coming, it is a $750 flight to Portland me. Or a 27 hour drive. I looked at driving to the Grand Forks, or Fargo to come, and the price was the flight minus the gas to get there. :( I would love to come for it, but I cannot budget that this year. I hope it goes really well though!

    I cannot wait until the BDC show comes to Florida. I just interviewed 3 people to be part of my second clinic and everyone of them told me"I just want to be here to be with you, but otherwise I would open a $100/hour clinic because I believe in that model” Banging my head against the wall…can you hear it?

    @Nora - there is a pretty regular set of “holiday fangs”, a double dip slow period around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
